Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

After the success of the first edition (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/socsci/special_issues/New_Directions_in_Gender_Research), we would love to re-open the Special Issue to continue the development in this topic of particular interest to gender studies. As in the previous issue, we will focus on gender studies, particularly considering new directions in this field of research.

Authors are invited to submit original research articles, meta-analyses, reviews, case studies, etcetera, based on findings observed or analysed in the empirical studies with diverse methodologies, focused on topics that may contribute to problematise the backlashes in the field, the challenges that are posed to those who research in this area, the new thematic agendas, among others.
